SpoFi Fantasy Baseball League Update: Sportsline edition. The leader for the second week in a row is jerseygirl! She's totally ruining my attempt to dominate both leagues. I will prevail though. [Complete standings inside]
The NBA Draft is tomorrow night.: Which is fine, I'm a big fan of all professional sports drafts, but the NBA draft is great because of the fashion! Short ties, pinstripes, and 6'5"+ players wearing jackets that would like like long dresses on any normal man.
Rays win their 12th straight: Screw the Yankees and the Sox, the Devil Rays are going to rule the AL East. Last night's win was their 12th in a row, and they are now 23-6 in their last 29 games. They are now just one game under 500. Ray's Talk notes that the last team that was 18 games under 500 and then reached 500 was the 1899 Louisville Colonels. Despite early futility, this is a great accomplishment. They've got some help down on the farm as well.

Boston College accepts invitation to join ACC.: Expanding the ACC's footprint from New England all the way to southern Florida, BC is going to stand out geographically. You have to wonder what made this move so appealing for BC. One thing is certain, it definitely hurts the Big East.
Jamison and Van Excel switching places.: Along with 6 other players. This clears up the front court log jam for the Warriors and the Mavs get another scorer (just what they need).
FOXSports and The Sporting News websites to merge.: I hope they don't use the wretched flash interface that's on the FOXSports website. The Sporting News has been a decent ESPN.com alternative for the last few years, I hope they don't ruin it.
Griffey Out for the year.: See you next year kid.
Who's going to return Billy Beane's phone calls now?: After the success of Moneyball, will other GMs think twice before making any trades with the A's?
Draft Busts,: Hindsight is a funny thing. Who would you add to this list? Who's going to be a bust from this year's draft?
Steve Phillips FINALLY fired.: What the hell took them so long? How long do you have to stay in last place? Can we bring in someone that knows what they are doing now, and not someone who likes overpaying for players past their prime?
